For Sale 1,000,000 € - Residential, Villa
Situated at the bottom of a private road, surrounded by rolling hills sprinkled with firs, pines and olive trees, this impressive villa is spacious both inside and out. The airy, light and elegant interior simply never feels crowded while the private pool, bordered by a wide terrace and attractive shaded dining area, provides a gorgeous location in which to relax to the soft tinkle of goat bells or gentle rustle of the breeze in the treetops.
With two pointed roofs and granite walls, locally hewn and made in the traditional way, villa Hlazeika has a striking appearance. The pale rose coloured hue of the exterior is echoed in the exposed stonework of the living accommodation, creating a warm and welcoming glow that is particularly pretty at sunset.
Shimmering in the pure Greek light, the infinity edge of the pool imperceptibly merges with the distant horizon while the vibrant blue ocean tinged with white crests also appears to blend seamlessly into a vast and cloudless sky.
Modern and comfortable, the interior is appealing and easy on the eye. Classic, quality furniture fringes a centrally positioned fireplace that designates the dining and seating areas. The kitchen is well appointed and each bedroom is very stylishly decorated with traditional wrought iron beds, air conditioning, a private balcony or terrace and an en suite bath or shower room.

The nearest taverna is a convenient 600 m away and it is just a 4 km drive down to the bright lights of Skala itself where a large selection of supermarkets, restaurants, internet cafes and bars await. Wide, predominantly sandy and stretching for 3 km, Skala’s Blue Flagged beach is considered one of the best on Kefalonia. It is also home to a water sports centre offering a range of activities for adult and child alike.
Nearby Katelios (7 km) is a laid back coastal village popular for its choice of beachside seafood restaurants where the selection of charcoal-grilled lobster, fish and prawn dishes changes regularly according to what has been freshly caught. Boats can often be hired here for exploring the coastline in search of deserted coves or sailing around to the famous beach of Mounda where a conservation centre has been established for the endangered Caretta-Caretta turtles.
Continuing north, Lourdas Beach and Trapezaki Beach are both well worth a visit, as is the island’s lively capital Argostoli, a bustling town with a colourful waterfront, vibrant central square and several interesting historical landmarks.
